    thanks for posting this, it helps me alot… Arigatou gozaimashitta

  2. Thanks for posting this, I’m working through them and found that “eigo” had the kanji twice, instead of kanji and furigana.
    英語 英語 eigo English language

  3. A couple other minor issues:
    皆さん みなさん minAsan everyone
    方 ほう hou ~より〜のほうが〜

    Thanks for the list, as you can see I’ve been closely reading through all of it!

    Darryl

  4. OK, another question! I thought that “ワイシャツ (waishatsu)” referred to a “Y”-front shirt, as opposed to a kimono-type closure, not a contraction of “white shirt.”

  5. Thank you for this list, there is one typo in there though: “not goot at something”, I believe it is meant to be “good” : )

  6. Deepa Deshmukh says:

    Thanks a lot for this wonderful list. It has helped me a lot !!
    You got a lovely site…..

  7. Thanks for the vocab list. However, there are no words starting with ゆ。Can u please include those too…..

  8. I found a few mistakes.

    1) おきる (to place) should be おく.
    2) 抜く (to take off shoes etc.) should be 脱ぐ.
    3) There is no English translation for 見せる (“miseru” is listed twice).

    • @Ando Thank you very much. All three points had to be corrected :)
      It is a long list and writing it with html is quite painful and mistakes easily happen. Thanks to contributions like yours the list gets better and better so that all students can enjoy correct material.
      Thank you very much again.

  9. Hi Nicolas ,

    Thanks for replying. I love your site and it has been very very helpful to me.

    I got exactly this same vocab list (without meanings) from my sensei as a JLPT Level 5 portion. The words below were also included in that list.
    ゆうがた (evening)
    ゆうびんきょく (post office)
    ゆうべ (evening; yesterday evening)
    ゆうめい (な) (famous)
    ゆき (snow)
    ゆっくり.と (slowly, leisurely)

    Sincerely,

    Deepa Deshmukh

      Deepa,
      Thank you very much. Unfortunately there is no official list of vocabulary required for the JLPT. As a result lists are created reviewing historical tests and different teachers have slightly different lists. I will check if I find these words in some historical tests and add them to the list in case I had overseen them before. Thank you very much for your attention on this.
      Nicolas

  10. Sure. Thanks for looking into this. Have a Good Day !!

  11. 会社 (company) has a broken link! It is http//nihongoichiban.com/2011/05/02/会社/

    It must be: http://nihongoichiban.com/2011/05/02/会社/

    ^^

  12. Hello your entry has a mistake, りょうがくせい must be changed to りゅうがくせい!
    ~^^~

  13. Nester says:

    SO, I know there is a separate list of kanji that are required for the test but as far as the vocab goes to we just have to know the furigana/meaning?

  14. Hello! I am Usagi. The Kanji 背 is usually pronounced せ not せい, please note せい is an alternate reading for せ but it is not usually pronounced this way in sentences like “メアリーは背(せ)が高(たかい)” and “私(わたし)は背(せ)が高(たかい)”. N5 learners are more likely to need to know せ from what I have seen. Thank you for an excellent website!

  15. Hello!
    I’m a bit confused.Sould I memorise all 800 words in Kanji for JLPT5 test or only those highlighted in pink or those written in red?
    Thank you.
    Sincerely,Alex

    • Nicolas says:

      Hello,
      Thanks for your questions, which other might have had too. For the JLPT N5 you need to know all 800 vocabulary, but you do not need to know to read them all as kanji. The list includes all kanji writing for those who are interested, but you only need to know the kanji writing of the vocabulary in pink to pass the test.

      • Thank you,Nicolas.It’s very clear now.It appears much easier then.
        Best regards,
        Alex

      • nibill says:

        That might be a stupid question, but if the Kanji, which are highlighted here, are all I have to know, what about the separate Kanji list? I assume I have to know the 103 Kanjis from the list, as well as those here highlighted, right?

  16. Fatsy says:

    Hi! The Kanji card linked to 妹 is the Kanji card for 姉. :)

  17. Hello again! The meaning for 見せる is to show. To watch, to look or to see is 見る. :)

    By the way, this review material is really great. I’m hoping you could update the material for N4. More power! :D

  18. Hi! It’s me again. I would just like to ask about the kanji 内(うち). It says in my Kanji book that the meaning of this character is “inside.” Does the word “uchi” meaning “house” really have a kanji for it? 教えてください。

    どうもありがとう。

  21. There are some Kanji that are colored but are not included in the 103 Kanji that are in the JLPT N5 kanji book here http://nihongoichibandotcom.files.wordpress.com/2012/09/kanjibookjlptn5.pdf
    Does the book need to updated or is there a mistake?

  22. Hm Please, the list for the JLPT N5, I know it’s not the official but, you colored this list, the boxes of the words are highlighted or is this just the word writed in red with link ?

  23. the kanji for oozei, 大勢 is missing but still marked red, so i guess it should be known for the test?

    thx, for the great site.

  24. Hi, Sophie and Nicolas. Thanks for an excellent tool. Just noted a few mistakes and typos.

    1. The word お菓子 okashi does not have a ひらがな version.

    2. I don’t think the kanji for 〜だい ~dai, meaning “counter for machines”, is 〜代, but 〜台. 代 is rather used to refer to age or generation.

    3. The roomaji transliteration for 真直ぐに まっすぐに should be “massugu ni”, rather than “massugi ni”.

    4. The verb “to forget”, which is listed as 忘る わする wasuru, should be 忘れる わすれる wasureru (it’s a verb from Group 2).

    Again, thank you for the great tool.

  25. こんにちわ!本とにありがとうございます!I trust this will help me~

  26. Hello there!
    Sorry for asking this but I can learn to speak Japanese too from this right? I mean not only learning kanji but speaking too?
    Thank you! =)

  27. Hi,
    Thanks for the great list!
    I just wanna ask if this list is the combination of i-adj, na-adj and verbs lists of JLPT N5?

  28. When your trying to help, but end up sounding like a brat. says:

    On the very top, ああ’s romanji should be aa not ah… And since it doesn’t have a kanji, why not just put N/A (not applicable)? Oh well, do whatever you want. :3

    • When your trying to help, but end up sounding like a brat. says:

      Or like you did with ageru.

    • “ah” is just an English translation of “aa” (cuz you should at least know how to pronounce Kana already)
      Putting N/A in a long list like this would cause the confusion (esp for my eyes), so I think it’s fine to leave it blank!

      • I don’t think so. I all romaji’s column, we can see the kana’s transcription, and then the translation, btw, why add a translation column if romaji is translation ^^ it’s not logical so.. Romaji of ああ is aa for me ^^

  29. chuachua says:

    I’m working with this :(
    my class is studing Minna no nihongo 1. And those words are my vocabulary, but my sensei said that we were going to have JPLT4 after finishing JPLT5′s knowledge :( I have no idea how i gonna pass it :(

  30. Hi Nicholas, in the romaji section for cup, koppu is written in katakana and it is transliterated into romaji as kappu. Please do the correction.. ^^

  31. Vishal Poojary says:

    Hi NIcolas! Thanks a lot fr the gr8 help in the form of this site!! It is indeed a boon. One correction I noticed was that of Koppu.. It should have been Kappu.. isn’t it?

  32. R.Saravanan says:

    Dear Nicholas san,
    Thanks for providing the useful information to us.
    I’m glad that somebody so committed for helping peoples to learn Japanese.

    regards,
    R.Saravanan

  33. Sharmila guha says:

    Hi why don’t you also include the kikurenshyu? That will be of great help. Thanks!

    • Nicolas says:

      Thanks for sharing this good idea. We keep adding more pages and function step by step but adding audio will take us quite some time as we first want to finish all the vocabulary & kanji lists. But we added this to the development list.

  34. could you give us audio file ?

  35. gopinath says:

    hai can u pls add audio for each word so that it will be helpful for learning the correct pronunciation.
    thanks in advance.

  36. Michael P. Havens says:

    This question might have already been asked and answered already, but I was just wondering, since there is only 103 total kanji you’ve grouped for the N5, can I assume that much of the vocabulary on this list will be in the “furigama” format, and not in kanji? At first glance, there are quite a few kanji listed on this list that is not part of the 103 set.
    Thank you for your time and consideration.

  37. thanks for the list.

  38. how can i remember all the vocabs ??

  39. i can say the Japanes also the international language. i want to learn japanes because i want to work with Japan people. And then i want to go to Japan and do the work at there.
    Also in my country now many Japanes Companies here. So if i know the japanes language i easily to make good conversations with them. So i will learn japanes now.

  40. Hi Nicolas,
    Thanks for putting up such a great site .Filled with great information & such good content , it is very helpful to novice like me.

  41. Thanks! This is a great help!

    However, I see 675 vocab. items, where are the other 125?

  42. Hey! Do you use Twitter? I’d like to follow you if that would be ok.
    I’m undoubtedly enjoying your blog and look forward to new posts.
